  • How to cut back hellebores to show off their flowers

    406 views 9 months ago
    In late winter (Jan-Feb), the flower buds of oriental hybrid hellebores (helleborus orientalis) also known as a Lenten rose, will start to emerge from the surface of the soil. To see and enjoy the flowers, it's a good idea to cut back the older foliage. This will also allow early-season insect pollinators easier access to the flowers for some much sought after food and removes hiding places for molluscs and rodents, both of which can attack the flowers and young leaves.
